The Department of Pensions and Pensioner's welfare, New Delhi, has considered the question whether the commutation value of additional pension is payable to the families of employees who had retired between 1.1.2006 and 2.9.2008 but died before exercising an option to commute the amount of pension that has become additionally commutable on account of retrospective revision of pay/pension on implementation of the recommendations of the Sixth Central Pay Commission.
The Ministry has examined the issue and it has been observed that the Pay Commissions’ intention was that the pensioner should exercise a conscious choice in view of the fact that the commutation table has changed w.e.f. 1.1.2006. Hence, it has been decided that, the Rule 10 of CCS (Commutation of Pension) Rules, 1981 may be followed in such cases and difference in commuted value be paid without fresh applications.
